I just bought an '01 5-speed Insight on e-Bay, and I have to fly down to Anaheim this week to pick it up. Problem is, I've never driven stick before. Is the Insight an easy car to learn on? It seems like the Auto-Stop function would make stalling impossible...am I right? Are there any other quirks and foibles I should know about manual Insights?
I believe that reverse is locked out unless you hold the shifter in neutral for a couple of seconds - so I don't think that you can grind the gear by going to reverse when you meant fourth. At least, that's been my experience.
